Cornell Engineering enjoys the many benefits that come from dynamic relationships between corporations and the college.
Companies gain access to world-class faculty pursuing cutting-edge research and broadly educated students exuding intellectual energy. Students get invaluable experience and potential career-starting experience, professors build topical, real-world projects into their academic offerings, companies get the benefits of eager minds tackling a specific project for them, and the college benefits by strengthening ties with corporations and industry.
These relationships provide access to a constant flow of mutually rewarding synergies and to some of the best talent in the world from diverse personal, academic and professional backgrounds. Long-term relationships evolve into real partnerships, customized to the specific needs of each member, best practices, and common goals. They work because they are multi-faceted, and the connections made by faculty, students, staff and corporations generate new interactions. These interactions improve recruitment by corporations, enhance curricular and extracurricular opportunities, support innovative research and collaboration, and promote the technological breakthroughs that will shape the future. These partnerships are valuable investments for all.
